gmstrftime -- format a GMT/CUT time/date according to locale settings


string gmstrftime(string format, int timestamp);

Behaves the same as strftime() except that the time returned is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). For example, when run in Eastern Standard Time (GMT -0500), the first line below prints "Dec 31 1998 20:00:00", while the second prints "Jan 01 1999 01:00:00".

Example 1. gmstrftime() example

setlocale ('LC_TIME','en_US');
echo strftime ("%b %d %Y %H:%M:%S",mktime(20,0,0,12,31,98))."\n";
echo gmstrftime ("%b %d %Y %H:%M:%S",mktime(20,0,0,12,31,98))."\n";
